April Theme: The Climb
Embrace the climb to the top through activities inspired by our new special exhibition, The Rockies and Alps: Bierstadt, Calame, and the Romance of the Mountains. Highlights include virtual reality mountain climbing, an inflatable rock wall, live entertainment, artmaking workshops, and a talk on access to mountain landscapes.
